DENVER - Just hours after the Arapahoe County Sheriff confirmed Denver Broncos star linebacker Von Miller was cited for speeding and driving without a license last week, the District Attorney's Office in Orange County, California confirmed he has an open arrest warrant in that state.
DA spokeswoman Susan Schroeder confirmed the information first reported by our partners at The Denver Post. The arrest warrant was issued after Miller failed to pay a ticket for speeding in a 65 mph zone and then failed to appear in court.
The speeding violation occurred on March 8, 2012 and was given case number 21021PQ.
Broncos officials told The Denver Post they are looking into the new warrant but had no other statement.
Miller's agent, Joby Branion, told The The Post on Wednesday night, "There is no arrest warrant," but did not want to elaborate on the record.
7NEWS recontacted Schroeder after Branion's statement and Schroeder said she stood by her earlier confirmation.
A litany of driving-related legal troubles have surfaced in recent weeks for the 24-year-old football star.
Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson confirmed to 7NEWS Wednesday morning that Miller was cited at 8:30 a.m. on Sept. 5 for driving 38 mph in a 25 mph zone at 7100 S. Richfield St. in Foxfield, an Arapahoe County suburb.
Robinson said Miller was with his father, who was then allowed to drive his son where ever they were headed.
Miller is currently serving a six-game suspension for violating the NFL's drug use policy.
As the NFL was weighing Miller's suspension, he was arrested Aug. 11 at a Centennial gun store when he tried to buy a gun. A background check flagged Miller for having an outstanding arrest warrant for failing to appear in court on an October traffic ticket.
In the October traffic stop, Miller was also ticketed just blocks from his home -- also for driving without a valid license, along with careless driving and no proof of insurance.
Miller has a mandatory court appearance scheduled for Oct. 28 for both the Sept. 5 and the October offense.
